    I've got to say, Siri on iOS 7 (GM, not beta) is really blowing me away. So long as I have a stable connection, it responds almost instantly, and it really does just work. I don't know what Apple's done, but it definitely deserves a round of applause. I've been using Siri for a long time, but even I had to admit its short comings now and then. Now, though, it just feels really rock solid and reliable!

    I'm also singing the praises of the new Siri. Crazy fast response (rivals Google finally) and has been able to take almost everything I've dished at it. Bravo Apple.

    It's blowing you? :eek:


    I still can't get it to call any of my family. Siri still can't figure that out.

    Now if only it would work as advertised here in Australia. We still can't find out what's playing at the cinemas..

    When I first got my iPhone 4S 2 years ago, I turned Siri off the first week I had it, and haven't turned it on since. After watching the past 2 Apple events, and seeing this thread, I am definitely going to turn her on and give it a try.

    I agree, new Siri has upped her game considerably. Now an offline-Siri option would be nice as well, if they can keep storage use down without sacrifice quality.

    It's amazing. So smooth. I'm gunna go out on a limb and say it's slightly faster than Google voice search now. Tested on iPhone 5 and nexus 7. Tends to interpret what I say better too :)

    I haven't tried it out in my car over Bluetooth yet, which is where I have the most problems.

    I hope it stays this fast when everyone gets iOS 7...got a feeling it won't, though.

    If you turn her on, maybe she'll blow you too

    Speed is one thing but what about functionality in the UK. Asking questions and finding buisness info or facts or directions.

    Until we get the same intergration that the States has itll still be limited.

    Huh

    Siri has been TERRIBLE for me for the last few betas, half the time Siri just fails to respond, and the rest of the time takes at least 10 seconds to do anything.

    I do remember remarking that Siri's performance around beta 3 was incredible though.

    Maybe I need to do a fresh install. :(

    Seems fine for me.

    It finds a ton of local restaurants, cinemas, etc.

    I wonder if we'll ever get sports integration. Maybe in another 5-10 years.

    I definitely felt like Siri was worse than usual during the betas. It might've been that Apple didn't want to devote their server resources to beta users, but that's just speculation. Give it a shot on the GM. It really might blow you ;)

    Siri is letting me call all of your family.

    "call Jigga's Mom"

    Yeah, when I installed the GM there were a few very fast searches, but now I'm in the same situation as you were for the betas on the GM - so frustrating when you try to save time by asking Siri something, but then have to spend more time because it doesn't work anyway - especially if other people are around, one looks like a douche.

    Say call my sister for example and it'll ask who your sister is. After you done it once it'll remember.

    Idk I've been having problems with Siri. When I initially start Siri, sometimes it doesn't work on the first try and says "Im sorry I can't take any requests rights now". Then it will work on the next attempt and will actually work much faster than it used to. But I have this same problem on 2 iPhone 5's.

    I agree- but I have a problem - Siri sounds like he has a loaf of bread in his gob.... It's not my speakers either, as Siri US sounds normal, but back to the UK and he's a nightmare!

    Tried hubby's iPhone 5 on ios6 and he's clear as day???

    Help
